This Annual Program Statement focuses exclusively on the Rio de Janeiro Consular District, which includes the states of Rio de Janeiro, Espírito Santo, and Bahia. Programs focused on other areas of Brazil are not eligible under this Annual Program Statement.

The Consulate expects to make awards from $5,000 to $20,000 and makes no guarantee that any funds will be awarded under this Annual Program Statement.

You may reflect these options in the budget submitted. As always, submitted budgets are subject to negotiation and approval by the Grants Officer before finalizing any grant award.
